Set of 3 Random Stamped Christmas Cards



I pulled out a few older, retired stamp sets and inked them up to make a 6"x12" piece of random stamped cardstock, and decided to make a set of cards with it.










One of my favorite old, retired stamp sets is called Many Thanks.
It has a bunch of pretty leaves and most importantly the adorable acorn.
Love it.  ♥


What a great way to spend a cold, wintry day, inside stamping & papercrafting!



Happy creating!  :)

I love this random stamping! I have done it before and I keep forgetting that I can do it to make my own paper. LOVE the colors you used. They are so "traditional" and yet the addition of browns makes it a little different. I used to be a CTMH consultant and I think I have all of these colors of ink! Will have to try this,,, probably with some different stamps, but it just all looks so neat!

These are absolutely beautiful!! I love the stamping over the stamped text, and all three have great layouts! I hope to imitate all of these! I must confess that even when I do try to scrap lift your work, it never turns out as magical as your originals. Thanks for being so inspiring!
